Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


May 22, 1891.
Senor Pedro Trujille,
Bogota Columbia.
My dear Sir:- with copy o
Mr. F.S. Hastings, of the Edison Electric Light Company, New York, has sent to me a copy of your letter to him under date March 19th last. With reference to the remark contained therein to the effect that you had hoped to receive letters from me, but were disappointed, I should like very much to know upon what you based this expectation, as I have no recollection of ever having been favored with any correspondence from yourself. Had I received any communications from you, rest assured my dear sir that I should have been only too glad to have acknowledged promptly their receipt.
I note by your letter that you are desirous of obtaining a portrait of Mr. Edison, together with some printed matter relating to his work, and it gives me a great deal of pleasure to gratify this wish. I am sending to you by this mail, under separate cover a photograph of Mr. Edison, upon which I had him place his autograph, and I beg that you will accept the same with Mr. Edison’s compliments, as well as my own. I am also sending to you a book entitled “A DAY WITH EDISON AT SCHENECTADY,” together with copy of a little pamphlet containing a sketch of Mr. Edison’s life, as well as a brief account of each of his inventions, the perusal of which I trust you will find interesting.
I note all you say about our friend Mr. McGowan, whose strange disappearance has caused us all so much uneasiness. I assume that Mr. Hastings will have answered the inquiries which you make in your letter in this connection.
With best wishes, believe me
Yours very truly
A.O. Tate
Private Secretary
